ALYSSA CAMPANELLA - [See my "Famous People" page]
The 2010 Miss U.S.A., redhead Alyssa Campanella, is REALLY a blonde; however, in high school she dyed her hair for a drama part and has kept it red ever since. Though her mom took the her to a professional colorist that first time, Alyssa has dyed her own hair ever since. She's tried many brands and formulas and she favors drugstore color by L'Oréal. She says, "When I dye my hair red, you'd swear I murdered someone in my bathroom. I'm messy, and it's splattered everywhere. I call it the 'crime scene bathroom."
Before changing hair color, Campanella says be sure your personality is a fit first. She agrees it's always BEST to consult with a professional to determine the perfect shade to accentuate your skin tone and coloring. Here are some other beauty tips from Alyssa:
Take baby steps. -- Can be a shock initially...so the easiest way to discover if you like the tone first before committing to a deep shade is to try a sheer wash-out tint. She says, "A red tint on a natural brunette looks beautiful, like a hint of auburn." Blonds may instead want to experiment with a light strawberry for a light kiss of color.
- Use semi-permanent hair color. -- Red washes out faster than other hair colors, which causes most redheads to process their hair more often than other shades. Alyssa Campanella swears by semi-permanent color -- which contains little to no ammonia, peroxide or other developer chemical -- so that freshening up a dye job is more gentle and forgiving on her tresses.
- Plan for some natural fading. -- Another beauty tip is if you want your hair color to look brighter for a special occasion, or perhaps softer for a more conservative situation, a little advanced planning is in order. "Those first few days after I dye my hair, it's like this big red pow! But by the next week, it settles down into a calmer color."
- Wash your hair less. -- To preserve that perfect red hue, the pageant queen washes her hair every two days -- a habit that doubles as a plus for hair health, too. She says, "Dry shampoo is the best invention! I use it between washings. I've learned from my work as a model that hair actually styles and looks better dirty.". Be sure to brush dry shampoo out thoroughly after application, so that you don't leave behind any white powder.
- Look to the seasons for tone guidance. -- Red can range the gamut in intensity, and Campanella says that the amount of sunshine she is exposed to determines which way she swings. "In the summer with more sun exposure, your hair is going to fade, so I keep it a lighter strawberry blond in warm weather so that it's less maintenance." With cold weather she goes for a deeper burgundy red, which also looks richer against classic fall and winter wardrobe palettes.
- Experiment with a touch of green eye makeup. -- She says eyes of any shade can enjoy the flattering nuance with a touch of eyeliner. "Use a hint of green eyeliner on the bottom rim of your eyes. It looks gorgeous with red hair." If you like the look, you can intensify the effect by applying an emerald or hunter green gel eyeliner on the top lash line instead.
- Clothes can make red hair pop. -- "The experts always put me in purple, greens and ivories for photos so that my hair color pops! But be careful of red on red. The deeper your hair color, the trickier it can be to pull off without clashing," advises Campanella.
MAKEUP TIPS -- Here are a few beauty tips and trade secrets on applying make for redheads -- by Clarins Celebrity Beauty Artist Pati Dubroff:
- Stay away from browns. "All it does is create a big...mud face"
- Expand your color palette. "You have to use contrasting colors on redheads to make a bright face"
- Use bright pinks and deep aubergines. "Colors that are really blue stand out against all the yellows that are going on in the skin tone."
Makeup artist Amanda Daly of Bobbi Brown at Brown Thomas has a few beauty tips on makeup -- "The right red lipstick on a redhead can be stunning. Recent redheads may need to change their blusher, lipstick and eyebrow colour but bear your natural colouring in mind so it doesn't end up looking too orange. Vibrant red can drain the face, so it's important to fuse colour back in with blusher or bronzer. Meanwhile, classic gingers should take care to define their brows and eyes with liner and mascara. And if you've got freckles, don't cover them with foundation cake -- show them off!"(Source: www.independent.ie/lifestyle/independent-woman/beauty/why-ravishing-red-is-the-new-blonde-2459478.html#ixzz1ACkswJ7q)
Want to DYE your hair red? Salon Ink’s Kelly Cyndrowski says red hair suits everyone – it’s just finding the right colour that works with your skin tone. Kelly's beauty tip -- As a rule of thumb, warmer skin tones suit orangey reds, while fairer skin tones suit bluish/violet toned reds. Maintenance is key for new redheads. Regular touch-ups are a must, as vibrancy and tone fade quickly, and it’s essential to use specific products for coloured hair. Of most importance, check with your colorist first to avoid any orange dye disasters beforehand! (June 2011)
Want to DYE your hair? For his beauty tip, foundation colorist Seán Dunne explains when the black barely budges from my barnet. "For girls with virgin hair with no dye in it, it's very easy to go red. Otherwise, going red is a gradual process so you don't damage the hair. "The first thing you need to do is decide what type of red you want -- whether fashion red, chestnut or ginger. Once you establish that, how you get there will depend on the condition of the hair and what colour you've already got in it.
Remember that artificial red is also one of the hardest colours to keep in your hair," he adds, "so a high fashion red like Rihanna's is going to be just as high maintenance as being a bottle blonde. However, something as simple as a few copper highlights can go a long way towards livening up your look."
